Morristown Dangerous Drug Attorney
Dangerous Drugs and Medications
As consumers and patients of medical doctors we assume the treatment that
they prescribe to be exactly what we need and to help us to recover from
any ailment that we are experiencing. There are many cases, however, where
individuals suffer from severe side effects due to the consumption of
prescribed medication. These
dangerous drugs can often pose a much larger threat through their side effects than the affliction that the individual was already experiencing.
Two examples of dangerous drugs include:
- Pioglitazone, brand name Actos
- Topiramate, brand name Topamax
Actos is a prescription drug that is used to treat type 2 diabetes by making
the body more sensitive to insulin. This works for regulating blood sugar
levels, however there are numerous side effects that the consumer can
experience: headache, muscle pain, sore throat, as well as other very
serious side effects like changes in vision or vision loss, cloudy, discolored,
or even bloody urine and many others.
Topamax is an anticonvulsant medication that is used to treat certain types
of seizures in people that have epilepsy and other medications have failed.
This drug is also able to help prevent migraine headaches but is unable
to relieve pain once a migraine is present. The various side effects that
an individual can experience in taking this medication may include difficulty
concentrating, confusion, as well as more serious side effects like vomiting,
bloody or cloudy urine as well as a constant need to urinate and many
other side effects.
